"An extrovert, with enticing plum, anise and blackberry fruit and a long, supple finish. There's plenty of stuffing and grip, but this is velvety and nicely assimilated, with plenty in reserve." (WS)

"Probably the finest La Dominique made since the wonderful duo of 1989 and 1990, the explosively fruity, dense purple-hued 2010 offers notes of licorice, roasted herbs, truffles, black raspberries and blueberry liqueur. Full-bodied and unctuously textured with sweet tannin as well as good freshness and precision, it should drink well for 15-20 years. P. S. The final blend was 77% Merlot and 23% Cabernet Franc that achieved 14.5% natural alcohol." (WA)

"Deep ruby-purple. Syrupy blackberry, red cherry and Oriental spices on the nose. Then surprisingly fresh and juicy in the mouth, offering dense flavors of black and red fruits, oaky torrefaction and herbs. Finishes with noteworthy length, noble tannins and a trace of heat." (IWC)

"La Dominique sports an earthy, mineral, plum, licorice and blackberry nose. The soft, medium bodied wine finishes with a cassis and cherry finish." JL)

"This is super powerful, with amazing density and richness. Goes on for minutes. Full, yet reserved and focused. Best ever.$$" JS)
